A few lines at the end (below) are simply incorrect – decades of research have been done on this subject of domestic violence, and women’s and men’s experiences of it as both perpetrators and victims – but otherwise it’s an interesting article. It would have been good to see it pointed out that in most cases of unreciprocated domestic violence, the perpetrators are women. 

One of the main questions regarding the issue remains unanswered; why does domestic violence against men occur? Whether this is due to women believing that this violence is a means towards independence, or whether the violence is traced back to childhood trauma or abuse from a previous partner is yet to be discovered.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.
